GIGABYTE GTX980 G1 Gaming WATERFORCE 3-Way SLI Kit Unleashed

Gigabyte has recently officially introduced the world’s first Gigabyte GTX 980 WATERFORCE 3-way SLI kit (GV-N980X3WA-4GD) with closed loop liquid cooling designed for hardcore gamers in search of the most quiet and the coolest ultimate gaming performance, especially in 4K. Powered by a trio of highly acclaimed GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 980 G1 Gaming graphics cards set up in 3-way SLI, the kit is solidly built to deliver monstrous graphics power up to its highest possible potential, while incorporating ultra-efficient cooling technology, intuitive control management, and easy-to-install design to put together a complete 3-way SLI graphics solution kit right of the box. Check out the rest of its features and specifications from the official release below.

GIGABYTE GTX980 G1 Gaming WATERFORCE 3-Way SLI Kit GV-N980X3WA-4GD

Ultra-efficient WATERFORCE with Real-time Display and Control
Each graphics card is pre-installed with the exclusive water cooling unit and radiator connected with a pair of coolant pipes. All three independent radiators are placed inside the external metal watercooling box. The intuitive control panel with an OLED display located at the box’ front panel enable gamers to check the performance of the 3 graphics cards in real time.

This intuitive control management offers two control mechanisms for gamers. By utilizing the Target Temperature Mode, the fan and pump speed of each card will be automatically adjusted to attain uniform user-defined GPU temperature across all 3 cards with a few simple clicks. Gamers could also make use of the Fan/Pump Control Mode to adjust each card’s fan and pump configuration individually as preferred for achieving other desired performances.

With the exclusive 3-way closed loop liquid cooling architecture, the WATERFORCE breaks through the multi-way configuration air cooling limitation and keeps all the cards cool at the same temperature level. Without having any of the cards gone overheating, the system is able to perform up to 42.6% lower in operating temperatures overall and 13.1 dB lower in acoustic performance under load compared to a 3-way SLI reference cooler for ultra-stable extreme gaming in near silence.

Extreme 4K Gaming Performance Guaranteed with G1 Gaming
The kit features GIGABYTE GTX 980 G1 Gaming graphics cards in 3-way SLI that could turn any typical gaming rig into an ultimate gaming beast, unleashing the richest graphics performance even when running the most graphically demanding game titles at 4K resolutions.

Beyond performance, the G1 gaming cards also guaranteed tremendous overclocking capability, thanks to the GPU Gauntlet™ Sorting technology, to go super overclock effortlessly. Further equipped with the second to none Flex Display technology, the G1 Gaming graphics cards provide gamers with the greatest flexibility in output connectivity options for multi-display gaming utilizing a combination of DisplayPort, HDMI and dual-link DVI.
